As many of my followers know, I joined Google back in January. This is a post on my thoughts about making the leap to joining Google and how I got here.

Hopefully it is insightful to developers thinking about their careers.

Now the decade of work we put into NoSQL is available to everyone using GCP.  One way it shows that we've been working on this longer than anyone else: 99% read latency is 6ms vs ~300ms for other systems.

Hosting Static Website with Hugo and Google Cloud Storage

Great introductory post on using Hugo in conjunction with Google Cloud Storage. I, as someone new to Hugo, was able to easily follow along and deploy a site to a spare domain. Try it out!
Static Websites with Hugo on Google Cloud Storage. Make Things, Show Things. If you want to put some content on the web, the fastest and easiest way is to write simple HTML. If you were making web pages 20 years ago you started with “vi index.html”. Today websites are a lot more complex.

If there are two of them, shouldn't the non-working one be removed from the play-store?
Cloud Console is awesome!

I think it would be cool for open source projects to have challenge coins. I could see having them for volunteering at PyCon, speaking at PyCon, participating in the sprints, getting a PEP accepted, being a core developer, and becoming a PSF Fellow.

"If the only options are to be amazing or terrible, it leads people to believe they must be passionate about their career, that they must think about programming every waking moment of their life. If they take their eye off the ball even for a minute, they will slide right from amazing to terrible again. That leads people to be working crazy hours at work, to be constantly studying programming topics on their own time, and so on."
Why the myth of the "10X" programmer is so destructive.

Does anyone know if it's possible to configure a Twiddler3 to act like an NKRO keyboard? 

My crazy thought: two Twiddler3s, change the keymap to something steno-like and use Plover. This would give lightweight, wireless steno input.

Ahh. I see. Thanks. I don't yet know steno, so I'm not super attached to mapping things exactly, as long as it's it ends up reasonably useful. Seems like there might be room to make it work. But I basically know zero actual steno so it might also be wishful thinking. ;)

When you're running software in ephemeral containers, how do you store data? YouTube published Kubernetes configuration examples for running Vitess to scale MySQL.
 
Vitess, YouTube’s solution for preventing bottlenecks and scaling MySQL deployment, is now available to Kubernetes and Container Engine users. Vitess is an open-source project that runs best in a containerized environment. We've created a single deployment configuration for Vitess that works on any platform that Kubernetes supports. http://goo.gl/HfnQZF

Introduction
I'm a Developer Advocate on the Google Cloud Developer Relations team. This means I help you build cool stuff with our APIs. I focus on the open source Kubernetes cluster manager and our Cloud Platform, especially Compute Engine and Cloud Storage. I write sample code and create demos, present at conferences, and create screencasts. Feel free to drop me a note if you have any questions about our APIs.

I've taught Python at the University of Washington & spoken at both PyCon US & PyCon Japan. I'm a bit of a Python fan. I'm currently learning Go and enjoying it.

I love it when people use technology to improve in-person communication. I've done some experiments via coworking, ad hoc lunch gatherings, and mini hackathons. It's great to see all the experimentation in this area. We live in amazing times!
